The Atheist Experience

The Atheist Experience is a live, weekly call-in show. We invite believers to call to discuss what they believe and why. Non-believers are also welcome, but calls from believers are prioritized.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Talk Heathen is a weekly call-in television show in Austin, Texas geared toward long-form and ongoing dialogue with theists & atheists about religion, theism, & secularism.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Secular Sexuality is a weekly call-in show live from Austin, Texas. Sex and sexuality are natural to all living creatures but religion takes this and twists it into something awful and to be ashamed of. We work to promote sex-positive culture, remove the shame, and discuss sex from a secular perspective.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Truth Wanted is a show about getting to the bottom of beliefs, whether it’s karma or Christ, Bigfoot or crystals. Truth Wanted would like to know how you know it’s true. Truth Wanted takes calls from the community and features new guests every week, emphasizing thorough conversations over name-calling and scoffing. Truth Wanted focuses on how and why people believe what they believe, and how you can talk about beliefs in more effective ways. Join us for truth investigations and lively conversations.
